Tihe p.oph. in the country parishes are be gi ziungi to manifest some interest in the re- i form movement. They feel that there has been much abuse and corruption in the ad- i ininistratin of State affairs, and tht there is great need of reform, but whether thdy be lieve it is to be accomplished rnder the an spices of the Democratic party to which the great mass of white citizens are devotedly attached, or under the lead of the "Third Party" or "Reform Party," lately called into existence by the ruin which threatens to en gulf our State, is beyond the ken of mortal aran. Some, advocate the cause of the new party on the wgound that it offers superioradvan tagi ., to the colored voters, who will be in duced by the lileral promises to equally di vide the offices to desert the ranks of the Rad ical party in such numbers as to insure the State to the Refoirm party at the election next fall. that the negroes cherish a feeling e¬ hostility, or autagouis: : to the Democratic party it as much as said party was identitied v Ith the institution of slavery in the past. aid they believe in the event of its accession, to power endeavor to reestablish the old order of thixts and remand them into slat ,ry. Of course such reasning is childish and puerile as the Democratic party would have no power, even if they cherished the desire to resuricet that dead and buried institution: they do not wish to drag old issues into the campaigu now opening ; slavery is dead, the negro cuflaneu ised and made the political equal of the white man, and the democracy accepts the sit u*n; it thinks :t usele.qto "kick aguinst th ri. ks." 7 As far as social equality is concerned the two partie. stand aborut on a par ; the Dem ocratic party does not believe it in the power of the Legislature to bring about sucun a stath of things, and no promises are made on that score; and the New Party, though they may pretend to favor it in order to draw from the ranks of the Radical party to swell their own, but that they intend carrying it out in the event of success, we may be permitted to doubt, inasmuch, as many who will march under the new banner of the Reform Party once were proud of the name of "Democrat." We do not wish it understood that we are opposed to retorm. We are not by any means; but we hope we shall be pardoned, if we say, that the wisdom of creating a new party at this crisis, when the Radical party even is proinuisingy reform, in order to prev atdeser tion from weakening its ranks, when such new party is calculated to draw most of its support i ,,un the Democratic party instead of the Radical party and thus make the vic tory of the latter a surer thing, and fasten upon us for four years more the reign of a legion of adventurers as merciless and raven ous as a tribe of savages. As we said betole we ar(- in fa'. ou of relorm fommn the highest t, the lowest office in the State; but the manner of accomplishi:ng such a herculean task is a matter worthy of our most serious consideration. To many per sons the beinging of a new part3 into the field is pregnant with danger to reform, cal culated (as it is) to split up the white vote, for there is no certainty that a smutrcieut num ber of colored voter,- can be induced by the most dlattering and liberal .flers of a fair di. vision of the offices to u ithdraw their al legiance from the party now in power in asmuch as that party promises reform also, and though those promises are only hollow words-shadows without a substance. It is claimed for the new party, that it will embrace all the pure meu trom allparties ; thatlall th sick ad i affairs <he State, will dock to its standard, shouting reform, anl making the welkin ring with the cry of freedom from the hoards of hungry adventurers, who kfatteu on our f substance ; but how can it prevent the dis lhom t from entering too f How test the sin cerity of those whoi come to ae polls, ballo in hand, and how prevent thile election of dis honest men to office They do not pretend to aigue that theRad ical party is composed of honest men we sup pose, and they even allege that there is much rottenness in the Democratic party. If all this be true where is the matoaial to come from for the pma party Now we do not presume to assert that there is nothing un clean in the Democratic party ; that there are not some men in it who hale accepted bribes, or thatthere are not those who would use unfair means"to secure office, but we be lieve those men,* who may wear the garb of Democracy, would be just as apt to get into the Reforan party as any other, and enough of.them might enter to corrupt the morals of the new party." We believe that work of reform can just as well be done under the ausPices of the Democratic party) and if it be necessary to add a plank to the platform in the approach ing campaign, without at all allowing it to in terfere with the measures of the National Democratic party, but only to enable us to de feat the R in this State, cannot that be done as we1Qto trust to a new, and untried party, madeof the dlscentented of all parties ? We think so, but if there is no other way by which we can rid.ourselves of the leeches that have been sucking our life blood for the last four years, we accept the situation, with the best possiblegraoe, and in our weak way will render assistance to bring ab;ut good results.

"By reference to statement E, of this re port, it will be seen that the total debt for which the State stands actually or contin geutly liable, is $41,733,752. When the con stitutional aameadmeat forbidding any in create of the public debt beyond P$a3000,000 was adopted, the geperal impression not un natarally was that all the obligations of the State fd not reachal th4tsum, when, in fact, they were then over $40,00Q,000. So some, such misconception must be attributed the fact that during the last. session of the G(n eral Assembly a number of laws were en acted which would hate increased this in debtedness over 09,000,000, and, but for the decislon of the Supreme Court, there would have been claimed for these a place for the rest of the debt."

To those persons who contemplate "pitch ing their tents" in this landrit may be a mat ter of interest to know what facilities are affosled for educating their children. Though there are some who look upon level plains, fertile soil, and navigable streams, and seeing them good, wish for nothing nmore to make them happy; there are othlrs who regard churches, colleges and schools, as pillars .tf strength nud levers of power. and education as the pearl above price, of which, neither war, revolution, flood nor faminile an hdeprive the possessor. To those hie would say the're ae in this place facilities for education not afforded per haps in any other town of.ic same j.opula tion in the State. There are t Mlchools or institutions undutl the auspiew4 of the Catho lic church: one. the Inlustrial College for males ; anud the other in the Convent, at which younng l:lies are inll ruichIl in all the brncee. ofe E:ugli-h ".nd French literature, and :aught all the aceonlplishmlents that con stitute a portion of a refined lady's education. Thca there is the "Mint Mere" school, taught by alady of experience and ample qualifica tions. None hut females, we believe, are ad mittedl into , his school, and were we fortu nate enough to have daughters to educate we know of none we would sooner entrust their education to, than to the lady \vho has charge of the "Mint Mere" school. Aud last but not least is the school organized last winter udder the fostering care of the Methodist church, and called the New Iberia Female Seminary, we believe. This school is as yet in its irI 3fay are is a board oatrustees, to. lbok'after itA.interest, and it is under the im mediate supervision of the Pastor of the Methodist church at this place, the Rev. Thos. B. White. As yet no suitable house has been procured, and the school is kept in the one formerly occupied by the public school, but the trustees hope at no very dis tant day to purchase a lot and erect a build ing more in keeping with the institution they desire to build up. The want of such a school as this has long been felt in this part of the State, and it is to be hoped those people having children to educate will appreciate the efforts of the Pastor and the board of trustees auu \ ill not withhold the fostering care which every newly established school of the kind requires during the season of itsin uaney. A corps of efficient teachers will be employed whenever the number of pupils de mand it ; but till then it is probable the school will be taught by the teacher who now has charge of it, a young lady who, we are assured, is thotouhly competent to teach any branch her pipils may desire to study. We believe there are two or three public schools in town for three or four months in the year ; that is, white schools. The colored children do not attend the same school with the whites, though they are educated exclu sively-that is as far as they are elducated at all-in public schools; they have no others. We hope to see the day when we will edu cate our sons and daughters at home, and not be obliged to send them to the North, nor to Kentucky, nor \ irgiuia, nor Tennessee. HIave we not as good material for teachers as any othear tate in the Union ? Certainly we have, and only need energy and patience to build up institutions of learning as good as ally in the land. Before the war it was not so much the education their sons received in colleges in di'.talt States that induced pa rents to send ti.: ir .- .us to them, but for the reputation al!,ieja it g.inetd hin. to say, "'my son was educated at Yale," or "got his degree from Oxford." Now they have no fortunes tation i:t Old Universities, let them give a portion of their abundance, 1if any have an abundance) towards erecting buildings and endowing professorships at home, and: learn to be independent. "The Building and Mechanics' As ocie tion." We stated last week that a movement wwas on foot to organize a "Building and Mechan ics' Association" in the town of New leria; the object of which will be to erect buildings, and dispose of them on such terms as will enable persons of small means to own homes. Town lots, though, in certain locations may be offered for small sums, are generally held at most fabulous prices,and cash is either re quired on the spot, or in one or two install ments ; and material so high that a poor man can not command "stamps," in sufficient quantities to purchase the lumber and pay the carpenter unless an opportunity is af forded him to do so on credit; and the Build ing and Mechanics' Association will do for him what perhaps no individual can afford to do-buy the lot, build the house and allow him to make his payments as he has been ac customed, to pay his rent, in monthly pay ments; with this diflierepce, that the purchase price secured by a n1gage on the property sold, and that he will be the owner of the property, instead of being a mere renter after he has paid the value of the premises and the ownership in another ; and besides he will be encouraged to beau.ify and render the prop erty-the ownership of which, he has been invested with-more valuable, and thus add to the wealth of our town'. Such action too, on the part of the Association, will very prob ably be the means of inducing people to set tle in N.w Iberia-if we may employ the term "induce" where really we believe no in ducemeat is required, except t'he building of habitable housaesto afford them shelter, when they do come. Ysao emuoey toP, took in aai r.asbai are willing b put in what i1 be required as much as money lumber and lots. Where lumber is furnished there can be no diflaulty in fixing the value, but where lots are centributed' it well be necessary for the Association to appoint a committee on board of assessors to appraise the lots put in ; or perhaps, a plan that would prove more satisfactory, would be for the Association to join the owner of the prop erty in the appointment of appraisers, each to appoint one, and the two so appointed, to select a third, in ease of disagreement. We have heard citizens of meany and in fluence, in this town speak favorably of the contemplated Aseociation, and we hope to see it organized and at work in a short time.

"The Chamber of Commerce deserves the thanks of the merchants of New Orlean% for its successful effort to procure an amendment of the pledge law. The act before an amend tmeet read thus: "The creditor canuot. it, case of tailure of pavyment, dispol-,' of tlh pledge, but where there have been pledg-s of stock, bonds or othellr property, for the paymnent or obliga tiozt, it shall be ecssary before such stock, bouds or other property, so pledged shall be sold for the paL inent lof the debt for which such liledge was nia, that the holder of such pldgt he e coipelikd to obtain a judg tent in the oidinary course of law, and the same foru:lititis it, all respIcs shall be ob served in the sale of p)rliert y So pledged as io ordinary cases..

"'uWe ind in the Washington P'atriot a recap- i itulation of the rombfries perpetrated upon the several Southern States by the Radical thieve. who have dev.&atated the land since the conclusion of the late hostilities. In ten States they have run the publklcdebt up to the enormous sum of upwards of two hun dred and forty millions of dollars, as follows: Alabauma.....................$ 32,442,312 50 Arkansas....... ........ 15,724,312 75 Florida .................... 15,542,447 54 Georgia......................- 41,137,500 00 Louisiana.................... 31,095,399 57 North Carolina............. .25,187,967 85 South Carolina............... 35,157,904 47 Mississippi .................. 1,796,971 50 Tennessee..................... 25.582,656 80 Texas ....................... 17,000,000 00 Total ....................$240,658,482 78 It is barely po.-ible that a portion of this stupendous sunm may be -aved from the wreck by the inability of the plunderers to to sell fraudulent bonds and other intended spoils. But in the most favorable light here is positive proof that in ten States desolated by the horrors of civil war, and where the actual property has deprecia ted ifty per cent. as compared l ith. the year 1860, an amount of money has been -'flen equal to one-tenth part of the et, -n u.: ional debt.

Of the two hundred and forty millicns, which have been thus loaded upon the back of an impoverished and suffering people, fully nine tenths cf that enormous sum has been ab soldtely appropriated by the "loyal" acamps for their own uses. 1 hat is to say, they have sold the bonds, ostensibly issued f r railroad and other improvements, for what they would fetch in market, and pocketed the proceeds without even an attempt to cover up the bare-faced frauds b~ initiating these pretend ed enterprises. Here is a basis upon which all men, it seems to us, may unite for State reform, for the iniquity has become so great that it entirely overshadows the matter of political principles or party lines.

An old gentleman in California has writen to a literary paper out there to say that he has a daughter; that she is fond of young gentlemen's society; that the young gentle men whose society his daughter is especial ly fond of are those who are addicted to cigars and billiards. and, in dispair, he writes to know what he, the old gentleman, is to 1do about it ? The San Francisco News 16t ter aqpwers him: There are several methods of reform. Probably the most obvious and effectual is to kill her, take off her skin and hang her up to bleed. The final disposition of the body is not important. If, in the progress of the centuries, we shall ever confer upon some homely damsel the honer of being daughter to us, and responsible for her bills, it is to be presumed that we shall adopt this method. Another way is to restrain her of her liber. ty by putting her into an abandoned well and dumping some tons of gravel atop of her. This plan is highly spoken of, and com r mends itself strongly to the judgement, Or the old gentleman may bind her ankles to anaunvil and upset her out of a boat. It would be needless to point out the advan tages of this plan. Finally, if he is too tender-hearted or af fectionate to adopt any of the foregoing meth. , let him lay her-properly chloroformed benerth the upturned root of a mighty oak, and .severing the trunk.

"WmIisKY HAS USE Hux Up."--There is scarcely a community or neighborhood. "from Mainm tb Oregon, where thi.sying is not used almost every day in the year' and altogether too truly. A subject of this kind is found in almost every town. The mer chant has failed, and whisky has done it. The lawyer, with a brilliant talent and large business, has fallen below the range of re spectability and confidence. Whisky was the sole cause. The politician, with bright prospects before him, has played out. and the account is charged to whisky. The judge, of age and respectability, is the subject of private and neighborhood talk. His enemies point. with derision and his friends hang their heads in shame, and whisky has done it. The kind hearted neighbor and hard work ing iman. has become a pest in society and trouble to his family. Whisky boat him. Whisky will beat any man living. and that is just what it is made for.-Figaro. THe GREAT HAIR PRODUCCR.-Hair Oils Pomatums and Pomadeshare had their day. They belong to the musty past. Nobody that understands the chemistry of the hair and the philosophy of its growth thinks of using them. Instead of clogging the pores of the scalp with thick otguents. and thusee obstracting the sensible perspi ration which is essential to the health of the fibers, we now tone the surface of the head with an invigorating application which penetrates tothe roots of the hair and stimulates them in the same way that the ferttllzlng agents spread over the meadows, stimulate the grass roots and cause the blades to spring up to myriads, coat lag The earth with verdure. The luvigorant best adapted to this purpose is Lyon's Katharion. It may well be ea:led the fertilizer of the head. To the barren calyp it communicates vegetable power. If the hair is dropping oat or becoming dry and withered, it arrests the process of dilapidatian or blight. The hair thiekens and becomes glossy and flexible under its gnial opera tion, and as a dressing it is unapproached by any prepa ration that has . et been laid on t!,e toilet of Fashion. if you desire rosy cheeks and a complexion fair and free from Pimples and Blotches, purify ) our blond by the use of Dr. Pieree' Golden Medical Discovery.

The season for plantin cane is near at hand, and he is confident that planters will find it to their advantage to give his cane coverer a faIrtrial. A ridge, or ros*, from five to eight feet wide, being opened by one or two furrows of a plow, and the cane, corn or other seed dropped in, will be completely and neatly covered by passing only once over it with the machine. It is easily worked by one boy and two males. and will perform the work of two ilows, and much bet ter, inasmuch as it leaves the row smooth, round and well dressed, which cannot he done by covering with the p-0* Compared to the hoe, which is generally employed by most planters to cover the cane, it will save the labnr of some fifteen hands or more, and, in well prepared land, will accomplish the work with more regularity and neatness. Two or three of these Cane Coverers will eep up with a force of some 60 or 75 hands, who can then be all employed in loading, carting and dropping cae. These machines may be seen and examined at C. Kappel's, St. Martinsville. Planters winhing to purehase will please apply to the undersigned at St. Martinasvlle.
